Before I got married I had a huge purse addiction. I would probably get a new purse every other month! I loved buying a new purse, specially when I could get an awesome bargain on it. [ ie. tj-maxx!!!! ]
I think the most I've ever spent on a purse was $75 (I got it had Tj-Maxx!) & that was for a Lucky Brand purse.
[ This one ^ but my handle was dark brown
& I quickly learned that ... white gets dirty super fast "/ ]
Next in line - my Vera Bradley collection. They are not cheap.
Well.. they're probably cheap when you have lots of money but when your a high school/college student who has two part time jobs - paying for gas, car insurance, and your phone and all the other little things - buying a Vera Bradley purse wasn't cheap!
You like my collection?
(Google pic all the way)
And of course when I was into Roxy, O'Neil and all those brands - I spent (and my mother spent) a lot of money on my purse addiction! Thanks mom! :) haha!
Anyways what I'm getting at is.. I've never been the one to have really, what I like to call.. over the top purses like:
Dooney and Bourke
or Louis Vuitton
In fact, even the thought of spending hundreds of dollars on a purse....( with our lifestyle ) blows my mind.
Don't get me wrong - If I had money I wouldn't think twice about spending a couple hundred or maybe even a couple
grand on a nice purse.
Let me get to my point... lol
Since I've been married (a year and.. four months) I have not bought myself ONE purse. Can you believe it? I was switching purses this morning... and I was looking up at my purse collection(if that's what you wanna call it..) and was thinking, geez.. this collection is pretty lame. They are all.. OLD.
I've switched them around so many times - it's time for a new purse!
I've sold some of my really NICE Vera Bradley purses for some extra cash and I wish I hadn't done that.
So with all that being said - I have a question for you ladies out there!
How much money would YOU spend on a purse?
Can't wait to hear all the answers!
My answer: Depends. With our lifestyle right now, I don't think I could spend more then 50 bucks on a purse. I just can't bring myself to spend a lot of money on a purse when there are so many other things we need! I'm such a good wife... haha. Now if my husband agreed on me spending some good money on a pur$e - then I would totally do it :)
